The Peranakan – DIY Nyonya Popiah Buffet [MEDIA INVITE]



The Peranakan recently launched their Nyonya Popiah Buffet. It is available every weekend for $28++.

Free Flow of Nyonya Popiah? Yes. The fun part is that you get to do it yourself, or you can get some nice folks in your group to do it for you but you will be missing all the fun. If you ever had a Popiah party before, this should be a breeze for you.

The Setup:

 
The Popiah Table

The Condiments


The Fillings - Bangkuang (Turnip), Pork Belly and Prawns

Check out my creation:

The Bangkuang (turnip) is fried with pork belly and chopped prawns, giving it a sweet, tasty and crunchy filling to the popiah. The skin has a perfect thickness to hold all the ingredients without breaking and feeling light as well. Definitely one of the nicer popiah I ever tried.

On top of that, you get bonus free flow of Nyonya Mee Siam & Hot Lemongrass Pandan Tea.

During this tasting, we had the pleasure to sample Dry Laksa, Buah Keluak Fried Rice with Sambal Acar, and Apom Bok Kwa with Pengat Pisang ($12).

For the dry laksa, the rice noodle is springy. The laksa paste, dried prawns, coconut milk is well infused in the rice noodle. While the generous sprinkle of the chopped laksa leaves, waken up the familiar laksa aroma in this dish. Definitely not missing the gravy. The Peranakan will alternate this dry laksa with mee siam from time to time.

Buah Keluak Fried Rice with Sambal Achar is a surprise dish for the new menu. Not to spoil the surprise, it is definitely a dish worth to wait. Expect generous amount of buak keluak with the fried rice.

Apom Bok Kwa with Pengat Pisang ($12). First time trying this dessert and definitely like it. The Apom is springy, with a light touch of blue pea flower. The Pengat pisang is thick, solid and creamy, ready for Apom to scoop it into your mouth. A taste from the past.
